The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and the OpenFog Consortium (OpenFog) announced that they have finalized the details to combine the two large and influential international consortia in Industrial IoT, fog and edge computing.  Effective immediately, the organizations will work together under the IIC umbrella to drive the momentum of the industrial internet, including the development and promotion of industry guidance and best practices for fog and edge computing.

This announcement brings OpenFog members into the IIC at a time when their complementary areas of technology are emerging in the mainstream.  The first formal meeting of the unified organization will be held in Raleigh, N.C., from February 11-14.
